Walking track gets longer
THE Western Suburbs Regional Organisation Of Councils (WESROC) has recognised Perth’s Noongar heritage with the opening of two Whadjuk walking trails in the western suburbs.
The Karda Bidi and Karak Bidi trails were officially opened last month, adding 21.9km to the Whadjuk trails.
Noongar Elder Neville Collard conducted the Welcome to Country and presented a message stick to City of Nedlands Mayor Max Hipkins.
Mr Hipkins said the launch of the trails was a proud moment for WESROC and the community.
“This launch represents more than expanding the Whadjuk network, it recognises Perth’s Noongar heritage and urban bushland,” he said.
“This is also represented in the partnership and work that WESROC has carried out with Noongar Elder Neville Collard in capturing the history of the area and Noongar lore for walkers to enjoy on their smartphones as they walk the track.”
